Afterwards…

Afterwards…

At first it was just laughter,

jokes at our expense.

We’d lost in the end,

the ‘people’ got their way.

~

We’d hoped that divisions,

would be allowed to heal.

Instead it became clear,

we were hopelessly naive.

~

Within months our names,

were published online.

They shared our numbers,

and showed where we live.

~

Declared traitors to the flag,

enemies of the state.

A new class system emerged,

based on who wanted what.

~

Laws began to appear,

that kept us in place.

Our property was seized,

we lost the right to vote.

~

A uniform was made,

they forced us to wear.

‘People’ need protection,

to know when we’re near.

~

Of course it’s opposite,

we’re attacked in the street.

Those words ignited violence,

gave it an acceptable place.

~

We’d heard the rumours,

whispers in the shadows.

Our kind were disappearing,

we were no longer safe.

~

Last night they came,

said I had to leave.

To pack the bare minimum,

no time for goodbyes.

~

The lessons of history,

show me my fate.

Is this what they wanted,

was this always the plan?
